Why Employees Matter
Organizations are so focused on safeguarding their hardware and software against cyber threats that they have forgotten all about securing the heart ware – the employees.
The strongest security around cannot stop your employees from falling victim to phishing attacks.
Increasing Compromised Emails
In 2016 alone, 43% of security incidents reported to SingCERT by individuals and SMEs have occurred through phishing attacks. Phishing attacks are responsible for 94% of ransomware and S$132,000 per Business Email Compromise (BEC) incident. In a BEC scam, attackers impersonate the owner of a corporate email account to mislead the employees or customers in an attempt to gain your confidential data or acquire enormous funds.
